SEAMLESS – Mobile manipulator navigation in complex dynamic scenes

Mobile robot manipulators (mobile robots with one or more attached manipulator arms) will be prevalent in addressing many future industrial and social needs such as contributing to the caring for an aging population, performing autonomous inspection, maintenance and repair operations in onshore and offshore industrial facilities, operating the factories of the future, as well as monitoring environmental pollution and removing contamination. However, in order for such robots to operate in more complex and dynamic real life scenes, important challenges regarding real-time 3D mapping and synchronized robot arm and base navigation must be addressed.

The SEAMLESS project is a SINTEF strategic initiative addressing these challenges. The particular focus of the project is on creating a seamless (tight) coupling between mobile manipulator control (both arm and base) and a dynamically updated environment representation around the robot.
